, 63% has already voted. in florida 53%. iowa 44%. and ohio 31%. john dickerson and i were talking about this earlier today. we could have most of the results already by the people that have come out early and that's why the campaigns spent so much time on getting out the vote early, this ground game on these early votes. >> pelley: we'll come back to you early and often. john dickerson is our cbs news political director. john is going to be showing us the various ways that the candidates can get to the 270 electoral votes necessary to twin presidency. john? >> well, first, scott, let's follow up on what bob was saying. we're going to dispatch with 41 of the states, the majority of the country cbs estimates based on the polling that those states are either going to go to barack obama or to mitt romney. that gives barack obama a start where he's likely to get 237 electoral votes, mitt romney is likely to get 191 electoral votes. so here we are at the beginning of the evening, nothing has been called, it's all possibility. so what is the easiest past for each candidate to get to that

of cuban voters in florida. one of the polls showed that the republicans lost the cuban vote, 49-47. now, that is a stunner for us as a party. that's always been a community that has shown great strength and support for the republican party. but have you a solution now that you write about in your column today. tell us about that? >> well, i do think on the cuban issue, this has to do with generational change among the population, the first generation that actually experienced castroism, was fiercely anti-communist and that's natural. a second generation that grew up in america, in freedom and only heard stories about it might be less so, so the softer policy of democrats might appeal to them. but the large issue is the hispanic vote, of which the republicans got only 27%. i think they are a natural constituency for the conservative party. they're immigrants, they are striving, catholic, religious. they are socially conservative. they ought to be on our side. the real problem is the question of immigration, legal and illegal. and i do think that it's time -- i did not have an epiphany ov

versus florida. you cut taxes you get more growth. you raise taxes you put people out of work and you bankrupt your state. >> we have you for the whole two hours so i want to get to a quick piece of president obama's op-ed because we already did governor romney's op-ed, i'll have you comment on it and then we're going to continue to chat about this all morning. he writes by the end of president clinton's second term our economy created 23 million new jobs, incomes rose, poverty fell, deficits became the biggest surplus in history. and what his point in part of this op-ed is if you look to the last democrat who he says he's shaping himself in that, in that image, if you will, you know, he was successful in that kind of a strategy. >>> the first two years of president clinton's administration weren't terribly interesting. the economy didn't do very well. however, in november of 1994, when the republicans won the house and the senate, all of a sudden, the stock market started going up, job creation started going up, we got a cut in the capital gains tax, a cut in the capital gains tax, a

the unemployment rates, nevada, 11.8%. colorado still 8%. wisconsin, ohio, new hampshire, virginia, florida, iowa. look at iowa, 5.2%. it's essentially full employment in iowa but they are concerned about debt, deficit and the quality of jobs you are getting. let's start with the ohio jobless rates. no gop candidate won an election without winning ohio. ohio makes presidents. today, 7% is the unemployment rate, less than when the president took office. that is better than the national average. they have been adding manufacturing jobs. not as many by any stretch of the imagination that they lost. look at florida and the trend of the jobless rate in florida. it's exactly where it was when the president took office. still higher than the national average. it has been coming down. housing is still a major issue here. in virginia, 13 electoral votes, jobless rate is low now. a 5.9% in virginia. but, it's still higher than when the president took office. essentially flat in virginia. it's going to be interesting because superstorm sandy could have an effect. power outages there. we don't know what tues

issue, cuba, it is also striking that i think president obama won about half the cuban vote in florida and also won florida by more than 70,000 votes. i think that reveals the politics with the cuban-american community may be changing significantly. again, this probably should not have come as a great surprise or shock to people following it, but it seems to have gotten a lot of attention. there may be more space to pursue more energetic policy of engagement from obama with cuba. from obama point of view, i think there has been some steps made with the lifting of restrictions on travel and remittances of cuban-americans and making travel more flexible. there's a sense not much has changed from the latin perspective. perhaps in the second term, there may be more of a change moving forward. on this issue, we also have to look carefully at the composition of the new congress and some of the pieces moving around. some new members of congress, some members of congress that held important positions that will no longer be holding them in the next couple of years and the senator from texas, al

grabbed headlines this week. florida senator marco rubio, a practicing catholic, tried to walk the line between science and faith-based creationism when asked how old the planet is. here's what he told "gq" magazine. i'm not a scientist, i don't think i'm qualified to answer a question like that. at the end of the today, i think there are multiple theories out there on how the universe was created and i think this is a country where people should have the opportunity to teach them all. i think parents should be able to teach their kids what their faith says, what science says, whether the earth was created in seven days or seven actual eras, i'm not sure we'll ever be able to answer that. it's one of the great mysteries. famed television scientist bill nye joins me now from los angeles. good morning. so you, like other scientists, say that we know how old the earth is and that the topic is not even up for debate. but every so often a politician makes headlines either denying science or casting some doubt here. so tell us, as far as you know, how old is the earth and how do you know it?
